Aldose reductase catalyzes the first step in the polyol pathway and is thought to be involved in the pathogenesis of diabetic complications. In addition to polyol synthesis, aldose reductase may have multiple other activities that intersect with signal processing and oxidative defense mechanisms. Multiple aldose reductase-like proteins have been discovered to have structures and catalytic properties that broadly overlap those of aldose reductase. This chapter will summarize new insights into… Expand

TLDR
The most recent progress made in the study of humans aldo-keto reductase (AKR) is discussed, which suggests the involvement of human AKR proteins in cancer development, progression and treatment. Expand
Aldo-Keto Reductases 1B in Adrenal Cortex Physiology
TLDR
This review presents the molecular mechanisms accounting for the adrenal-specific expression of some AKR1B genes using data from recent mouse genetic models to connect their enzymatic properties and regulation with adrenal functions. Expand
Human aldo-keto reductases 1B1 and 1B10: a comparative study on their enzyme activity toward electrophilic carbonyl compounds.
TLDR
Evaluated in parallel the enzyme activity of 1B1 and 1B10 toward alpha, beta-unsaturated carbonyl compounds with cellular and dietary origins, including acrolein, crotonaldehyde, 4-hydroxynonenal, trans-2-hexenal, and trans- 2,4-hexadienal showed that 1B 10 had much better enzyme activity and turnover rates toward these chemicals than 2B1, suggesting their difference in biological functions.

Barley aldose reductase: Structure, cofactor binding, and substrate recognition in the aldo/keto reductase 4C family
TLDR
Several studies suggest that ALRs are involved in more general metabolic pathways than osmoregulation, and a role of ALR in oxidative defense has been proposed. Expand
Rat aldose reductase-like protein (AKR1B14) efficiently reduces the lipid peroxidation product 4-oxo-2-nonenal.
TLDR
Kinetic analyses of the oxidoreduction and dead-end inhibition suggest that the reaction follows an ordered sequential mechanism. Expand
Aldose Reductase and the Polyol Pathway in Schwann Cells: Old and New Problems
TLDR
Investigation of AR and the polyol pathway using immortalized Schwann cells established from normal and AR-deficient mice could shed light on the causal relationship between the metabolic abnormalities of Schwann Cells and discordance of axon-Schwann cell interplay in DPN, and led to the development of better therapeutic strategies against DPN. Expand
Aldo-keto reductase family 1 member B8 is secreted via non-classical pathway.
TLDR
Several factors, which are involved in the non-classical secretion pathway, such as temperature, ATP and calcium ion, regulated AKR1B8 secretion from mouse colorectal cancer cells CT-26, and AKR 1B8 was located in isolated lysosomes, therefore, AKR2B8 is a new secretory protein through the lysOSomes-mediated non- classical pathway.

Identification and functional characterization of four novel aldo/keto reductases in Anabaena sp. PCC 7120 by integrating wet lab with in silico approaches
TLDR
The role of AKRs are affirm in providing a broad tolerance to environmental stresses conceivably by detoxifying the stress-generated reactive aldehydes. Expand

A potential role for aldose reductase in steroid metabolism.
TLDR
New insights into the structure of ALR2, together with emerging data demonstrating that many individual aldo-keto reductases may participate in divergent metabolic pathways, lead us to question whether sugars represent the only physiologically-relevant substrate of this enzyme. Expand
The aldo-keto reductases and their role in cancer.
A definitive role for many members of the aldo-keto reductase (AKR) superfamily has been elusive despite evidence of the involvement of these enzymes in the metabolism of steroids, biogenic aminesExpand
The aldo-keto reductase superfamily. cDNAs and deduced amino acid sequences of human aldehyde and aldose reductases.
TLDR
Southern hybridization analysis of human genomic DNA indicates a multigene system for aldose reductase, suggesting the existence of additional proteins, and the aldo-keto reductases superfamily of proteins may have a more significant and hitherto not fully appreciated role in general cellular metabolism. Expand
Substrate specificity of human aldose reductase: identification of 4-hydroxynonenal as an endogenous substrate.
TLDR
Analysis of the binding of NADPH by fluorescence quenching techniques indicates that aldose reductase exhibits higher affinity for NADPH than NADP, suggesting that this enzyme is normally primed for reductive metabolism. Expand
Structural and kinetic determinants of aldehyde reduction by aldose reductase.
TLDR
Modeling studies indicate that the large hydrophobic active site of AR can accommodate a large number of aldehydes without changes in the structure of the binding site or movement of side chains, and high hydrophobicity due to long alkyl chains or apolar substituents appears to stabilize the interaction of the aldehyde substrates with the enzyme.

It appears that aldose reductase may constitute a major detoxification route of these toxic aldehydes in the retina. Expand

The crystal structure of the aldose reductase.NADPH binary complex.
TLDR
The crystal structure revealed that the enzyme is a beta/alpha-barrel with the coenzyme-binding domain located at the carboxyl-terminal end of the parallel strands of the barrel, and NADPH is bound to aldose reductase in an unusual manner, more similar to FAD- rather than NAD(P)-dependent oxidoreductases.

A new integrative model of diabetic complications is proposed that combines the aldose reductase/polyol pathway theory and the nonenzymatic glycation theory except that emphasis is placed both on methylglyoxal/acetol metabolism and on glucose metabolism. Expand
